Letter: ​Who is the new special collections librarian?


It is very exciting to learn about the appointment of Maria Estorino as special collections librarian as reported in The Daily Tar Heel on Dec. 1, 2016.

The reporter told us about the opinions of many people with regard to the new appointment, but unfortunately there was no information about Maria Estorino herself.

In welcoming her to the UNC Library we would like to know what her educational background is, how did she become interested in a career in library work, where did she do her library degree(s), what is her professional experience and what are her major accomplishments in the positions she has held prior to this appointment at UNC, and what, if any, prior connections does she have to Chapel Hill, to UNC and/or to the state of North Carolina?

Thank you.
